How Russia Blocked Our Site and How We Dealt With It

As many other services, mkdev.me also fell prey to the recent banning campaign conducted by Roskomnadzor. It resulted in significant traffic loss, which deprived us of many potential customers.

.NET Blogs to Follow: The Ultimate List

Back in the day, books were the only way to gain knowledge. I remember spending hundreds of hours in book stores and in the local library, digging up old books about programming. Fast forward to 2019 and my focus has almost entirely shifted to blogs. Here’s my personal list of my recommendations for .NET blogs to follow.
